Are you getting ready for the Cottonwood citywide yard sales? The library is about finished with the move and remodel, so we have furniture such as a desk, storage cupboard, book cart and shelves, along with lots of books and other miscellaneous items donated by generous people. If you have anything you don’t need we would take it for our yard sale. If you want to have a yard sale with us there is still room for you. Dog Bark Park will be having a yard sale at their place that day also. Anyone interested in material for quilting should see what they have. It will be a fun day for you to come to Cottonwood.
